Hey Brian,

I finally figured out (read correctly) the section of code I was trying to manage. I was missing that fact_pl['digs'] was equal to digits / 0.72 and therefore any composite over 115 digits was handled by the "if fact_p['digs' >= 160:" section, instead of def-par.txt. So, therefore factmsieve.py changes the values for composites over 115 digits.

Thanks for all,
Ed
